Aftermarket CDI's?

Do any of you guys use these, and have you ever heard of a Brand called Procom? Any problems? Thanks

From what I have read on numerous occasions Procom sucks and should be avoided at all costs.

Which leaves what? OEM or Yoshi (or possibly SSW??)

Talk to Eddie about that one. I have the yosh myself, but I think he favors some other one. No clue who makes it..

They were having us test them 2 years ago (Procom) because of the amount of failures then they dropped us from the testing. I've had their 11K box in mine for over 2 years now. However previously I had purchased one of their boxes that had been rebranded for BigGun...That one failed after 5 seconds. It's hit and miss with them. If you want a 10.5K box just get an "E" model CDI. If you want an 11K box try to find a Yoshimura CDI with a Mitsubishi symbol on it...Or you can "try" a ProComm...Yes they had problems a couple of years ago but it may have been sorted out since...Like I said the one they gave me for testing (11K) has been working fine for more than 2 years.

Burned does sell his CDI so you can contact him...

There's supposed to be another CDI possibly in the works from an aftermarket CDI manufacturer with programmability.

You can also get the Vortex (Wolf) CDI which has two preprogrammed curves (maps) for $400...

Supposedly, Procomm has good customer service. This is very good as you will be speaking to them, alot.

You might gain RPM or lose all RPMS!

You will gain RPM with the E (if you ride a S/SM) CDI

You will gain RPM if you get a Yosh box

You will not go faster. The DRZ engine drops off the power after around 8,000.

Eddie's (and the very pricey Vortex) box changes the ignition timing, so it actually can make more power, when setup right.

Boxes are not 'magic power machines'. You need to optimize other parts of your engine well before the value of a special CDI males any sense at all.

Wow! All very good info! Thanks guys. I think I will just stay with what I have at this point, sounds like my kicker model is pretty good for a stock set up.

Yup, kicker/E box is all you need and would want unless you are building an all out engine.

Does someone know if anyone has used another cdi with their yosh kit? Or could someone tell me an approx power gain vs. using the yosh cdi. ?

havent hit the dyno, but I think the kit brings the bike to the 50 hp range

the yosh cdi only raises the rev limit.has no other effect.

the yosh cdi only raises the rev limit.has no other effect.

I know, but what kind of power gain could I expect if I switch the yosh cdi to lets say.. one of yours.

1-2 hp peak depending on the motor set up and fuel used.

not much to be had running pump fuel.

it also has a fully adjustable rev limiter and some other featrues more gear toward atv's.

a 41mm fcr is better money spent.

Yepp Procom are CRAP!

Not to sure lately but 2 years ago they were a 50/50 chance. I had 2 that didnt work. Theyll let you send them back but no saying the next one will work either. What out there are a few others that are made by procom as well.

Go with the YOSH

      So I am going to put in an in-line fuel filter just for added protection from stuff in my gas .... and I have always used bronze element cone ones you no what I’m talking about the ones everyone seems to use but upon reading online supposedly that bronze element breaks down and doesn’t catch everything .... I have came across a moose fuel filter that has a fine nylon mesh just like what’s on the petcock filter ... any opinions on which is better ? Bronze element or mesh ?

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!
